The Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts (Charter Arts) is a regional charter high school attracting students from a ten-county area in eastern Pennsylvania.  Charter Arts is a public charter school, funded by Pennsylvania taxpayer dollars. Students audition for acceptance into one of seven arts majors: dance, instrumental music, literary arts, theatre, visual art, production design, and vocal music. Figure Skating will be discontinued after the 2018-2019 school year.

Charter Arts’ unique arts-centered curriculum pairs pre-professional training in the artistic major with a rigorous core academic program. Students study their art discipline for half of the school day and a full academic schedule during the second half of the day. Students are accepted based only upon their artistic talent and potential.  What makes Charter Arts unique, and is a key component in the success of our students, is the arts emphasis within the curriculum. Charter Arts has created a culture of high achievement across all art and core disciplines. Our creative students think and learn differently.
